WOKK (97.1 FM, "97 OKK") is a country-music-formatted radio station broadcasting in the Meridian, Mississippi, Arbitron market. From 1970–1983, the callsign was WALT and until 1981 was formatted as a top-40 station. The growth of competitor WJDQ "Q-101" prompted WALT to adopt an easy-listening format, much to the chagrin of its listeners. But the format change was short-lived. In 1983 the station swapped with WOKK (AM 910) and adopted the WOKK country format. Since the swap, WOKK 97.1 has been one of the most listened-to stations in the area.

WOKK is part of the Alert FM digital-alert and messaging system for Lauderdale County first responders.[1]
